Setting up an Incentive Program Checklist

Employee incentive program goals should be developed to encourage behaviors that accomplish organizational objectives. Goals can be rolled out at different intervals as the incentive program progresses to help keep it fresh and relevant to participants. Awards Network does provide a free sample goal listing for clients. You may also want to consider having a theme to your program based off the goals you decide on.

Find out how much you can afford to spend on your employee incentive program. Awards Network provides a free budget worksheet for clients. If you list out each goal, and factor in the likelihood of all employees reaching the goal, you can play around with different point values and determine your end targeted budget. Program goals might need to be weighted so that objectives that take more effort to reach have greater rewards in return. Make sure to get your employee incentive program budget approved before proceeding.

Depending on your employee demographics and their access to computers, the incentive program can be paper-based and/or online-based. Points can be given to employees via point cards or entered online and then notified by email. You may also choose to do both.

Once we receive the incentive program information and artwork, most programs are able to start in 3 weeks. Be sure to allow for plenty of time to thoroughly proof your incentive program website and materials. The more time you can spend before the program starts, usually means a better presentation to employees.

Communication is vital to the success of your incentive program. Awards Network can create customized communications including: posters, emails, letters, flyers, program statements, instant point cards, order forms, announcements and other media all branded to match your company logo and incentive program.
